“The World is Still Beautiful” streamed on Sunday, December 12th, 2021 at 8 pm and was available online through January 2nd. 

When times are dark, the artists in a society remind us of the beauty of this world, and in so doing, give us hope for renewal. 

New York City Ballet performs Andrea Miller's "New Song"

In addition to music by Franz Schubert, saxophonist Hayes Greenfield, and Bruce Wolosoff (performing his own piece with cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio), this program included art work by April Gornik, and a special viewing of “New Song,” which was created by choreographer Andrea Miller for the New York City Ballet.

MUSIC IN RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE

Reflections in Music made its return to live, in-person concerts with the world premiere of two cello sonatas written by our new artistic director, composer and pianist, Bruce Wolosoff.

Composed during the height of the pandemic, the sonatas offer two meditations on climate change and global crises. Requiem for the Planet is a four-movement work that considers the prospect of irrevocable loss, while  Paradise Found was written as an affirmation of the preciousness of life.

Joining the composer was world renowned cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio, a Grammy-award winning cellist, founding member of the Eroica Trio, and a regular collaborator of Wolosoff's.
